Messages of the President of China Rule of Law Research Institute
I spread China rule of law index to the United States when I was in Stanford University in 2008.
Every time when I passed the famous Hoover Institution, a dream came to my mind: I wanted to establish China’s own top-level think tank with international influence. At that time, I discussed with friends from home and abroad, and they all agreed on that idea. Therefore, in 2008, China Rule of Law Research Institute was set up.
I spread China rule of law index, Chinese judicial transparency index, and China E-government development index to Britain when I was in Oxford and Cambridge in 2012.
Every time being amazed at the spectacularity of ancient buildings in Oxford and Cambridge, and every time wandering in the palace of human thoughts, I thought that China needed its own academic school. In 2002, at the CASS Forum and International Conference on China Rule of Law, I put forward the concept of China School of Rule of Law Practice, and I believed that China School of Rule of Law Practice was forming.
China School of Rule of Law Practice, which can also be called China Practical School of Rule of law, takes China rule of law practice as the research object, aims at creating China Rule of Law Normative System and Rule of Law Theoretical System, and paying attention to reality, effectiveness, Chinese characteristics, Chinese style and Chinese dignity.
China is moving forward rule of law with a new look. China School of Rule of Law Practice is worth expecting; the future of China rule of law is bright; China has a promising future!
